Patriots win at Potlatch
Patriot ladies from Summit Academy continued their winning ways last week, adding victories over Prairie and Potlatch to extend their record to 10 and 1 halfway through the current season.
Traveling to Potlatch Saturday they improved their White Pine league record to 4 and 1. Summit, playing with post Prigge and their coach required away for the weekend held leads of 4, 1, 4 at the quarter breaks to finish the game with a 49-44 victory. Fatigue and a poor showing of 9 of 30 from the lane contributed to the low score, but the end resulted in both season and league wins for the Patriots.
Scoring, rebounding, assists and steals data follow in that order: Chmelik-18,14,1,6 with one block; Frei-1,4,0.0; Stubbers-14,12,2,0; Schumacher-3,3,0,0,; Wemhoff-13,6,8,4 and 1 block; Kuther-0,4,0,1. The Patriots shot 38% from the field, but endured 25 fouls from their opponents, sending them to the line often but not effectively.
The preliminary game resulted in another loss, 17-30 to the Loggers with the local girls hitting only 15% of their field attempts, and 11% from the line.
Games this week include an away game at Timberline Thursday, and a varsity only pair at Highland Saturday morning with Salmon River and Culdesac.

Summit boys lose twice
Playing at Highland Thursday and Genesee Saturday, Summit boys endured their third game in a row of torrid three shooting by their opponents, along with a somewhat recuperating David Johnson, to drop two more games, both White Pine League pairings.
Hosting Lapwai at Highland’s gym Thursday, the Patriots fell prey in a run and gun match 63-82, as the Wildcats netted nine of their three attempts and added a high percentage of the two’s, while also putting down 7 of their 8 lane attempts, posting for the evening their first win of the season.
Summit meanwhile, got caught up in the running games, and gave away 21 turnovers during the game to doom their effort, while being only 14 of 33 from the lane to add to their troubles. Scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals stats for the game show: Derek Nuxoll-4,2,1,1,; Austin Chmelik-7,3,0,1 with one block; Johnson-7,8,1,1 with one block and still playing on injured legs; Dylan Prigge-15,8,7,3 with one block; Josh Frei- 26,8,1,2 and Josh Schlader-4,4,0,0.
In the preliminary, the Wildcats ran away from a game group of Summit boys, also a fast paced, run and gun, 62-24.
The trip to Genesee Saturday was no kinder to the Patriots, as the Bulldogs sharp passing game and assist driven buckets took their toll on Summit, dropping them 64-44 in a game which saw the local boys struggling at the line with a 9 of 22 showing. The seven treys netted by the Bulldogs coupled with Sharp inside passing proved to be a bit to much for the Summit defense. The 18 turnovers endured by the Patriots also contributed to the result, marking the third game in a row resulting with summit losses, when a bad line effort, turnovers, a sub par Johnson, and hot three-shooting opponents proved to be too much for the Patriots to overcome. That three point shooting, all at or near 50% by their last three opponents, saw24 of them drained to drive the nail of defeat in the Summit coffin. Stats for the evening, points, rebounds, assists, and steals: Nuxoll- 0,2,2,0; Dan Wemhoff- 0,0,0,0; Chmelik- 3,0,0,1; Johnson- 16,11,2,0; Prigge- 14,6,4,3 with one block; Frei- 11,5,0,2; and Schlader- 0,4,0,0,. Score by quarters: 8-14, 20-27, 28-46, 44-64, the last quarter being the most damaging, as fatigue of starters, many of whom had to play one quarter of jayvee ball, began to take its toll.
Preliminary-A 72-39 loss pasted on a reduced Summit team, both games for the evening played by only 10 players, down players not there or unable to play.
Games for this week for Summit: Highland here at Prairie High School on Friday, and then a two-game session Saturday afternoon, with Salmon River and again Highland the opponents.
